Running In Other Peoples Shoes

Don't do it
Today I forgot my shoes for my walking date. I honestly didn't think we were even going out. My thongs weren't practical, and nor was barefoot. So I borrowed a pair of shoes, and clean socks. They were the right size and everything, except for the width across the toes. We did 3km in those shoes, only walking, and now I have blisters!
They weren't right for my feet and I could feel it. My knees hurt, my toes got blisters and they just weren't my shoes.
Maybe this has happened to you, maybe it hasn't. Regardless of whether it has or hasn't, I would recommend against trying it as it could cause all sorts of issues, more than what just happened to me. These shoes won't necessarily be the right sort for you, they might not have the right arch support, the right width (or even length), they will be worn according to the other person’s foot fall.

If you want to know what a certain pair of shoes are like, ask around and get differing opinions, go try on different shoes at the sport shoe shops (they can fit you correctly), spend some time researching.

Everyone’s feet are different, everyone has different needs and you shouldn’t really just wear anything or you could end up with an injury. Take care of your feet so that they can take care of you.
